The Importance of GMP Certification
What Does It Mean to be GMP-Certified?
GMP stands for good manufacturing practice and is a set of regulations put in place by the FDA to ensure the products you’re purchasing consistently adhere to quality standards. While complying with good manufacturing practices is mandatory within pharmaceutical and medical device manufacturing, adherence to these regulations is not yet required by the hemp and cannabis industries.
The GMP regulations encompass all aspects of production, from raw materials to equipment to employee training and everything in between.
Why Does The GMP Certification Exist?
These regulations aim to minimize or eliminate any health or safety risks involved in the production, such as contamination, mix-ups, or other errors. The FDA website states, “A consumer usually cannot detect (through smell, touch, or sight) that a drug product is safe or if it will work.” The bottom line, GMP standards exist to ensure you receive the product you are promised as a consumer.
Why Should I Shop GMP-Certified CBD?
Not all CBD products are created equal! The last decade has been a CBD gold rush, with the cannabinoid rising to the forefront of mainstream therapeutics meant to aid in inflammation, anxiety, and overall well-being. Unfortunately, due to this rapid boom, the industry remains widely unregulated, causing many CBD consumers to be exposed to faulty products.
When you buy GMP-certified CBD, you can rest assured, knowing that the product you’re using is safe, pure, and effective. At Samson, our products are extensively vetted by proper manufacturing operations, the highest quality raw materials, and robust operating procedures. We take pride in our work, and it shows.
